KSL Newsradio's Marc Giauque reportingAs the fur flies over an email-related scandal in Washington, D.C., here in Utah state officials are launching a new campaign on cyber security.

It involves all kinds of electronic communications, including emails, instant messages and text messages, and includes efforts to protect people from predators and those people after personal financial data.

"It would be compromising of information, personal identity, as well as any other forms of compromise, including cyber-predators," said state Information Officer Steven Fletcher.

As part of that, Fletcher said, the state is asking every executive level employee to complete a cyber security course. He says the state withstands over 100,000 malicious attacks every day.
